On Friday, April 23, 2010, I was honoured to be included at a dinner for Ray Villard, News Director for the Space Telescope Science Institute (Hubble). There were about fifteen people at the dinner, mostly from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. Listening to the conversation about astronomy, and the Hubble Space Telescope was fantastic! I was privileged to discuss my art with Ray, and have my picture taken with him.
The following day was the Hubble’s 20th Anniversary, and Ray gave a talk at the Space Centre in Vancouver. Afterwards, I spoke with him again. We agreed to stay in touch, and I look forward to more conversations about the Hubble, astronomy, and art.
